1- create a shell script as follows (Replace "Tunisie Télécom / TUNTEL WEB DATA" with the name of your Mobile Broadband connection name):
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash while true; do LC_ALL=C nmcli -t -f TYPE,STATE dev | grep -q "^gsm:disconnected$" if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then #jdownloader is still in the download status so stop it because #internet is disconnected and jdownloader won't resume download #when connected again #jdownloader --stop-download #sometimes I can not get connected after disconnection when #I click on <name of the network connection>. I have to disable #and enable Mobile Broadband nmcli -t nm wwan off sleep 1 nmcli -t nm wwan on sleep 1 nmcli -t con up id "Tunisie Télécom / TUNTEL WEB DATA" #wait approximately 15 sec to get connected #if anyone can add better command to check for it just comment it :-p sleep 15 #now connected to internet so start download #jdownloader --start-download fi #it does not worth keep it checking every millisecond. #my connection will be reestablished within 5-15 seconds sleep 2 #if anyone can code it better please feel free to comment #TO-DO:: check for data received. if data < 15 KB after 20 seconds of connection #reconnect mobile broadband connection done
2- Save it and give it execution permission then add it to Startup Applications.
Now it will connect automatically at startup and if connection is dropped.
Solution 2 :
1- get the attached script below
2- extract it to your home folder (or somewhere safe) and make it hidden by placing a dot before it like this .network-autoconnection.sh (so that you won't accidently delete it)
3- Give it execution permission like this: rightclick on it, go to "properties", then navigate to "permissions" then tick "Allow executing file as program"
4- go to the Mint menu and type "startup applications"
5- click on "add" then "browse" opposite to "command" field to give the directory of the script (your home folder or wherever you've placed it) then give it a name in the "name" field, for example mine is "Tunisie Télécom / TUNTEL WEB DATA".
That's it guys!
